Almost half of the people in the United States admit to being afraid of the dentist, and one of the most common reasons behind dental anxiety is injections. Fear of pain-killing shots may be one of the things holding you back from getting your smile upgraded with porcelain veneers. Now you have a new option. Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers that don’t require shots or significant changes to the tooth structure.
Lumineers: Two Visits to Beautiful Teeth
Placing Lumineers usually takes two visits—one less visit than is needed if you are getting traditional porcelain veneers. The first visit involves discussing your goals with the dentist and getting a precise mold made of your teeth. On the second visit, the dentist will confirm the fit and shade of the Lumineers, and then bond them painlessly to the surface of your tooth, giving you a more attractive smile. Two visits and no shots – how can you go wrong?
